These shorts are great ! They really do live up to the hype regarding support and comfort. Unlike other compression shorts these stay put once you get them on. (make sure you don't buy them too big, they need to be tight) They provide very good support to your upper leg muscles without being too constrictive. The ventilator panel does help but because the material is fairly heavy to provide support, these shorts are warm compared to others made from lighter weight material. A worth while trade off as far as I'm concerned.
Give these bad boys a shot. You won't be disappointed
Overall, after one long run these tights felt great. I believe they helped in a quicker recovery of my quads and hammys. The black thick material made it feel warmer though at 71 degrees F. I 'd like to see lighter color versions. I am borderline at 5'9'',168-170. Should I have bought a small instead of a medium? Maybe these should be made in 'tweener sizes like Small/Medium. It will be nice to have a mesh window placed in the rear area just above the tail bone. I sweat profusely there after long runs.
I have used the ankle length CW-X running tights for the past year and have loved them. These Stabilyx Ventilator Shorts are just as good. They provide a nice compression fit and wick away moisture very well. I sweat very heavily when I run, and these shorts keep me cool - if not completely dry. I have other running shorts that are a loose fit, and I can tell a real difference with the targeted compression of the CW-X shorts.
They are expensive, but I highly recommend them.
I play soccer quite a bit and needed something a bit more supportive than a pair of cotton boxers. I got all that and more with the ventilator shorts. These keep the lads in place, and provide the compression needed to recover quickly from afternoons of mind-blowingly fast sprints to and from the goal. Combined with the Ventilator Top SS, I sometimes mistake myself for Lionel Messi. Bottom line is that these shorts are really great for anyone who needs to perform while running.
I've worn these for jogging and some intervals. So far I have to say I really like them. They're very comfortable and do not restrict movement. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend this much money on shorts, but I'm glad I did. Temps have mostly been cool on my runs (60's), so I don't know what they will be like in the heat.Also, the CW-X underwear works well underneath these.
I love these shorts! Honestly I just wear them around the house occasionally because I like the feel of them. I'm 6'2" 185lbs and the Large works just fine for me. They do a great job of "keeping everything together" and I don't feel it as much after those long runs in the middle of the summer day. A bit expensive, but I don't think I'll be running in anything else.
Great stuff: so far I've used them for running intervals, jogging, and working out at gym. Like magic, no soreness (and I'm old and out of shape). Ventilation is surprisingly good: it's been in the 90s and I feel no warmer down there than in loose running shorts. Warm up the bank card, they're worth it. I'll be getting the full tights in the fall.
I sweat a lot, regular running shorts feel like I am running in wet diapers after about an hour, these work great and I think it may be helping my form. I think it also helps recovery and improves my workouts. Just need to save up to buy a couple more pairs.
